Well we survived the wedding – and it was beautiful. When I arrived home last night, two packages were waiting for me.
One package was from my Secret Pal III. Inside was a cute refrigerator magnet and Last-Minute Knitted Gifts; a book filled with wonderfully simple and quick patterns. I had been eyeing this book at Borders – and now it’s mine! Thanks so much SP3, you’re the best!
The other package was from Bron and it contained (drum roll please)…The Guenivere’s Bower Bag! Yes! I was the lucky recipient. All of us who frequent Bron’s blog had been watching as this bag evolved. In addition to knitting this cute bag, Bron hand-dyed the yarn, added some decorative beading, and installed a liner and zipper! Thank you Bron for this lovely and thoughtful gift.
I finished phase 2 of my Secret Pal 2’s final gift. Phase 3 will begin tonight (if it’s dry). I’m anxious to share it with you all, but it’ll have to wait until she is in receipt of it.
I just found out that the craft boutique I participate in every year is scheduled for December 14th. Last year I made nearly $500. So if my kids want any gifts this year, I need to get to knitting down my stash so I have lots of selection for purchase. As long as this frou frou scarf craze is going on, I’m going to take advantage of it. Then I’ll get down to serious knitting for me and (maybe) my friends and family.
My home computer is still down. While I can covertly post from work, I am unable to download pics directly from my camera. I was, however, able to email some wedding photos to myself from my sister’s computer, so I do have some of those photos to share with you in my next post. Until then, here's a preview.
